ALOM Featured in NAM 2021 State Of Manufacturing Address Saluting Strength of America’s Manufacturers

May 14, 2021

Supply chain management leader joins manufacturers across the nation to showcase the power of manufacturing and highlight how the industry is critical for the future success of the American economy

ALOM, a global leader in supply chain management today announced its
support of the National Association of Manufacturers and the Manufacturing Institute during their ninth-annual State of Manufacturing Address in Baltimore, Maryland. The address, held virtually, acknowledged the hardworking and highly skilled men and women in manufacturing that met urgent needs—from household essentials to test kits and vaccines, and their efforts to step up and provide innovative manufacturing and delivery solutions during COVID-19. ALOM was featured in a short video during the event, highlighting its significant contributions to the manufacturing industry assembling and distributing COVID-19 test kits over the past year—and its outlook for the future.

“ALOM is proud to join the NAM in this important address to the nation,” said Hannah Kain, ALOM President and CEO. “This past year showcased the resiliency and determination of the manufacturing and supply chain industries to hold nothing back in being part of the solution and helping save lives, all while doubling their efforts to keep their workers and communities safe during the pandemic. We are proud to play a role in this groundswell of manufacturing industry success and innovation. For manufacturers, the role of the supply chain has never been more important. Recovery-related demand swings and supply chokeholds create challenges that require strong supply chain management to prevent production from being brought to a halt. The bottom line is that the state of manufacturing is strong, and that is surely worth celebrating.”

The NAM address will showcase the manufacturing industry’s innovative response to COVID-19, highlighting the vaccination events of their address host, Marlin Steel Wire Products, and the industry’s commitment to four educating policymakers, media and the public about modern manufacturing through its industry-leading Creators Wanted tour.

“In the second quarter of last year, with the pandemic bearing down on us, only 34% of manufacturers reported a positive outlook. Now, manufacturers are incredibly optimistic, with nearly 88% saying they have a positive outlook for their businesses,” NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons will say in his remarks. “The vaccine is also one important reason why manufacturers see the light at the end of the tunnel leading to the next, post-pandemic world. The state of our industry is growing stronger with each and every vaccination. Manufacturers in America are determined to see us through this crisis, and to build a world better than any we’ve known before.”

The remarks will be delivered virtually to manufacturers, business and community leaders in order to keep community members safe and limiting the spread of COVID-19.
